So before I start sharing with you the reasons I am a huge fan of working online and just in case you are new here, I am Alecia Hall, the person behind “Brea-kin Barriers”. Like many of you who have been searching for different ways to earn an additional income especially from the comfort of your homes, I myself was once rowing in the same boat you are in.

I started working online through Fiverr where I landed my first gig. You can click on the link highlighted to read more on how I landed my first gig on Fiverr. Because of my success with Fiverr, it had registered in my brain that working online and earning an extra income is certainly possible. This is one of the reasons I decided to start this website. I want to helppersons break the barrier of unemployment and low income.

Yes I still have a fulltime job where I work 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week but I am also able to find the time in managing my own online business. I certainly don’t want to be working for a company for the rest of my life so I am definitely doing everything I can to be my own boss.

I am not 100% where I want to be but I am happy that I believed myself, took the plunge and started my journey in working online. So now I am going to share with you my 8 reasons why I am a huge fan of working online.

1. You can work from wherever.

Working wherever I wan has got to be one of my top reasons. I don’t have to be in an office for 8-9 hours a day. There are days When I don’t feel like leaving my house at all or even get dressed in working clothes. All I need to know is that I have a laptop and phone that is working properly, I can go anywhere that has a stable wifi connection (whether it be a friend’s house, library or internet cafe) or enough data on my phone that I can tether to my laptop in order to complete my work.

2. No commute or dress code.

When you are you are yor own boss and working online, you don’t need to commute daily to any specific place and there is absolutelty no dress code. You are able to work in your bedbroom, living room, kitchen or if you have your own office designed at home you can work from there. Since you don’t have to commute daily there is no dress code. The only time you may need to dress in a professional manner is if you are dealing with clients face to face or have meetings with them.

3. It is more flexible than a tradditional job.

With tradditional jobs, there is a set time for you that you are required to adhere to. Depending on the type lf work you do, you may work from Mondays to Fridays or you may get your days off during the week. You may also fall in the regular working hours of 9am-5pm or you may only work late shifts.

Your work may not go according to your life happenings and sometimes you may need to run errands here and ther, some that can only be done during certain business hours. Sometimes, the working hours of some tradditional jobs will even cause you to miss deadlines simply because some companies doesn’t provide a flexible schedule to their workers.

4. There are more opportunities available for earning an extra income.

In your traditional job, you can only look forward to that one salary at the end of the month or whenever you normally get paid unless it is a case where you are working 2 or 3 jobs which you have to try to juggle going to different places and keeping these jobs. However, at the end of the day, you are being exhausted and barely have time for yourself, your family or even friends.

If you are working online, you are able to easily have more than one online gig as everything will be done one 1 or at most, 2 devices (your laptop and/your phone). For me, I am running this website “Brea-kin Barriers” that is monetized with ads from ads network and affiliate links. I also work as a freelancer on Fiverr and Upwork, I sell digital products on my website as well as etsy, all of which is done on my laptop or my phone.

5. You can work at your own pace.

We are living in a world where more people are starting their entrepreneurship journey as people are getting tired of working for other people. In addition, they certtainly don’t like the fact that they are not able to work at the pace they want to.

When you are running your online business, working for yourself, you don’t have to always rush to get things done. You are able to work at the pace you are comfortable with.

6. You get to set your own schedule.

One of the greatest feeling in the working world is to be able to work on your own terms, your own schedule. Whether or not you want to work, it is totally up to you. With a tradditional job, you have to respect and adhere to the company’s schedule as there will be chaos when workers don’t.

One thing I must tell you, although you are able to set your own schedule when you are working online, make sure you set your schedule wisely. Prioritize what needs to be prioritized and still strive to meet your deadlines as you would with a traditional job. In doing this, you are making sure you are staying on top with your business.

7. You get to work with people worldwide and connect with thise who share similar interest with you.

When you work online, there is no limit or rule as to where or who you can work with. In fact, you are able to collaborate and work with anyone across the world all through working online.

Since working on Fiverr, I have had the opportunity of getting customers from the United States, United Kingdon, Barbados, Hong Kong and Malaysia. Through my website, I have also interacted with persons from Australia, Cameroon, Spain, Ireland and many more. This is just another beauty of working online, connecting with people worldwide.

So I have shared with you my 8 reasons why I am a huge fan of working online. Tell me in the comment section below what you love about working online. 🙂 🙂

Alecia Hall

Hi, I am Alecia Hall, the creater of “Brea-kin Barriers” and I am from St. Mary Jamaica. I have been a Customer Service Representative at Digicel Jamaica for over 4 years and started working as a Virtual Assistant on Fiverr in February 2020.

I have gained customers from the US, UK, Hong Kong, Barbados & my very own, Jamaica. Some of my tasks as a Virtual Assistant includes proofreading & editing, data entry, research, transcribing, handling emails, and more.

I started this website “Brea-kin Barriers” to offer several benefical services to my readers which includes:

Inspirational quotes and reflections
How to earn additional income online
My Virtual Assistant Services
An online Course: Your Breakthrough To Growth & Success: Shattering all negative barriers
And a step by step guide on How To Start a Blog

The term breaking barriers is something that I am very passionate about and I love to see persons rising to the surface, “shattering the glass ceiling” as they start to grow until they have reached success. I am one known for always encouraging others and is reliable when it comes on to motivation.

My favourite quote that I live by is “The race is not for the swift but for those who can endure to the end”.

The fastest one does not always win the race and the battle does not necessarily mean it’s for the strong. After all, I believe that sometimes you have to through a dark tunnel and sometimes life has to throw you lots of lemons before you can get grapes to make wine.
